During the months of November, December & January, ISSUP’s National Chapters came together virtually to discuss priorities, research, collaboration opportunities and our forthcoming conference and workshop next May in Abu Dhabi, UAE. ISSUP also welcomed several key partners and stakeholders who provided useful and interesting updates and presentations.
These meetings were a great opportunity to share knowledge, provide updates on key areas including training and funding, as well as to discuss how our National Chapters can work together on future research and collaboration initiatives.  Our final meeting in January focused on the Abu Dhabi event, which provided information on logistics, the conference programme and inputs required from our National Chapters.  
It is now time for the ISSUP National Chapters Team to develop a plan for the areas discussed and work with our National Chapters over the year to bring these plans to life – exciting times ahead!
ISSUP’s National Chapters are instrumental in delivering our vision and mission at the local level and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for taking the time to join these meetings.  We are very much looking forward to meeting in person at our Abu Dhabi event in May 2022!
